Junichi Abe’s kolor is immensely popular in its native Japan, so much so that the brand partnered with adidas several times in past seasons. For Fall/Winter 2021, the brand nodded to the sportiness of that joint effort, simultaneously delivering a fresh assortment of patched layering pieces and wearable essentials, the latter partially issued under its kolor Beacon sublabel.

Menswear and womenswear coincided on the Tokyo runway, highlighting a bevy of Abe’s signature mish-mash silhouettes that included track jackets erupting from tailored chesterfield coats, standalone collars wrapped around two-in-one sweaters and creased slacks finished with an elasticated drawstring waist. Elsewhere, logo-laden sweaters coincided with fringed piecemeal dresses, varsity jackets morphed into blazers and oversized harringtons were interrupted by windbreaker paneling. New patchwork sneakers and metal-accented loafers reinforced the collection’s disparate influences.

Other deconstruction-focused Japanese brands presented their own Fall/Winter 2021 collections recently, including Maison Mihara Yasuhiro, sulvam and Fumito Ganryu.
